Supervision details

I am currently working as a supervisor, having trained with ACT counselling service.  I work within the supervisee's modality, and would seek to enhance the supervisee's learning experience through supervision.  This includes self-care, practice management, developing skills as a counsellor and how sessions affect the supervisee in work and personal life. I specialise in trauma and bereavement supervision for a charity and run a bereavement workshop to which people are regularly referred. Although work can vary according to clients' needs a significant proportion of my work has been in couple counselling. This adds a different dynamic to the counselling, including two partners and the relationship. Following extensixe work in schools as a teacher and in coaching, I supervise school counsellors

At present I hold a supervisory role in a counselling centre, implementing policies and procedures
